    Laptop Problems

    Anyone any ideas. Have some RM laptops and one of the children has managed to change the screen orientation. She can't remember what she has pressed. I don't know what she pressed and I can't find a way of changing it back. A restart has not worked. Anyone any ideas?

    Sorry if this is in the wrong place, nothing really seemed to fit )

    Should be a things children do section for all the crazy stuff.

    Thanks all.

    The usual culprits for changing screen orientation are

    ctrl+Alt+ move cursor arrow (up/down/left/right)

    if not those keystrokes, check what video card is installed, and see if theres an application running in the system tray. usually intel and ati have applications that let you configure or turn off orientation.

    This should sort it. You'll need to be logged into the laptop though.
